However, more notable is the $24 per month that you have to pay for the “Humane Subscription.” This provides cellular data and a phone number via what should be a Humane MVNO that uses T-Mobile’s network. You also get cloud photo/video storage and the “ability to make unlimited queries of AI models” from Microsoft and OpenAI.
The Humane Ai Pin is powered by an unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon, has a camera, sensors for depth and motion, a “personic speaker,” and a green laser projector. Besides voice commands, there’s a touchpad and the ability to connect Bluetooth headphones. Notably, you have to physically activate/touch the Pin as there is no wake word. When the device is recording, you get a “Trust Light” indicator, which is a strip at the top of the device.
